The latest release of our Digital Asset Management System focuses on the DC Story Editor. DC-X 2.3.0 comes with a spread preview for newspaper pages, placeholders for Image Containers with shared captions as well as a drag & drop function for stories.
The DC-X Story Editor, in combination with DC’s and ppi Media’s Content-X editorial system and its InDesign plug-in, has always provided a preview of the article being processed on the (InDesign ) newspaper page.
In addition to the article or page preview, the right sidebar of the Story Editor now offers a spread preview for both the pages and their position in the publication. In this way, a user can navigate easily and quickly through the entire edition.
Yet another new feature is the drag & drop function for stories. They can now be dragged from the Story Editor’s navigation sidebar directly into a specific collection. All areas of the current story except for the type icon (in this case: the InDesign “ID”) can be used to drag the story into a collection or to assign it to another story.
Last but not least, a little innovation that should be pleasing to editors as well as the IT team: The integration of custom TinyMCE plugins that bring their own values can now be easily configured without the need for an extra developer to be consulted.
